Overview

This book gives an introduction to the basic theory of shastic calculus and its applications. Examples are given throughout the text, in order to motivate and illustrate the theory and show its importance for many applications in e.g. economics, biology and physics. The basic idea of the presentation is to start from some basic results (without proofs) of the easier cases and develop the theory from there, and to concentrate on the proofs of the easier case (which nevertheless are often sufficiently general for many purposes) in order to be able to reach quickly the parts of the theory which is most important for the applications. For the 6th edition the author has added further exercises and, for the first time, solutions to many of the exercises are provided.

This corrected 6th printing of the 6th edition contains additional corrections and useful improvements, based in part on helpful comments from the readers.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews of the fifth edition:

"This is a highly readable and refreshingly rigorous introduction to shastic calculus. … This is not a watered-down treatment. It is a serious introduction that starts with fundamental measure-theoretic concepts and ends, coincidentally, with the Black-Scholes formula as one of several examples of applications. This is the best single resource for learning the shastic calculus … ." (riskbook.com, 2002)

From the reviews of the sixth edition:

"The book … has evolved from a 200-page typewritten booklet to a modern classic. Part of its charm and success is the fact that the author does not bother too much with the (for the novice) cumbersome rigorous theory … . This does not mean that the book is not rigorous, it is just the timing and dosage of mathematical rigour … that is palatable for undergraduates … . a highly readable account, suitable for self-study and for use in the classroom." (René L. Schilling, The Mathematical Gazette, March, 2005)

"This is the sixth edition of the classical and excellent book on shastic differential equations. The main difference with the next to last edition is the addition of detailed solutions of selected exercises … . This is certainly an excellent idea in view to test its ability of applications of the concepts … . certainly one of the best books on the subject, it will be very helpful to any graduate students and also very valuable for any analysts of financial market." (Stéphane Métens, Physicalia, Vol. 26 (1), 2004)

"This is now the sixth edition of the excellent book on shastic differential equations and related topics. … the presentation is successfully balanced between being easily accessible for a broad audience and being mathematically rigorous. The book is a first choice for courses at graduate level in applied shastic differential equations. The inclusion of detailed solutions to many of the exercises in this edition also makes it very useful for self-study." (Evelyn Buckwar, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1025, 2003)
